Evelyn Dunbar (1906-1960):
Kneeling nude, reclining three quarter rear view, circa 1930
Mounted (ref: 5406)
Pen and ink, watercolour, 13 x 9 in. (33 x 22.8 cm.), corners cropped.
Provenance: Margaret Goodwin,
Gill Clarke has suggested
that this wash drawing was probably painted at one of the Royal College
of Art Life Classes. Alternatively the model might be Margaret
Goodwin herself from whose collection this drawing came.
Goodwin, a friend and contemporary of Evelyn Dunbar's at the Royal
College of Art, School of
Drawing and Painting, attended the sschool from 1929 to 1933. The two
remained friends. It is recorded that they holidayed together, with
(mother of Allan Gwynne-Jones), at Strawberry cottage, possibly around
the time war was declared, and in April 1941, in the Lake District,
with Roger Folley, (Dunbar's future husband) and Glynn (William) Burton.
We are grateful to Gill Clarke for assistance.
